Publications

An active publication program serves as a bridge between I Tatti and the international scholarly community. The Harvard Center has an obligation to make available the important research that originates here, from studies by individual Fellows and group research projects to the conferences, seminars, and lectures held here each year. I Tatti also publishes research conducted outside the Center that adds significantly to our understanding of the Italian Renaissance. The publications program consists principally of our journal, I Tatti Studies (16 volumes), and four book series: the Bernard Berenson Lectures (4 volumes), the I Tatti Renaissance Library  (63 volumes), the I Tatti Studies in Italian Renaissance History (14 volumes), and the Villa I Tatti series (30 volumes). The complete list of proceedings of conferences and seminars held or organized at I Tatti includes many publications outside of these series. In addition, 7 works about the Berensons or I Tatti were produced by or in collaboration with the Harvard Center. Moreover, the Lila Wallace - Reader’s Digest Publications Grant for former I Tatti appointees has provided subsidies for 124 scholarly books on the Italian Renaissance, many of which grew directly out of research carried out at the Center.

I Tatti’s publications program is supported by the Lila Wallace – Reader’s Digest Endowment Fund, the Scholarly Programs and Publications Funds in the names of Malcolm Hewitt Wiener, Craig and Barbara Smyth, Jean-François Malle, The Andrew W Mellon Foundation, the Robert Lehman Foundation, and the Myron and Sheila Gilmore Publication Fund.
